This painting by Barkley Hendricks is only his second large figurative work to come to auction. Born in Philadelphia, Barkley Hendricks studied painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Yale University. Since the late 1960s, Hendricks has painted life-sized representations of young, hip models and friends. He pushed the contemporary figure to new heights, pursuing realist portraiture on both a human and grand scale and empowering his subjects with a keen sense of style steeped in the skill of academic European portraiture.

Barkley Hendricks has taught painting at Connecticut College in New London, CT since 1972. He has had many solo exhibitions since 1970--including shows at the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Delaware Art Museum, the Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, SC, the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts and ACA Galleries, New York. His paintings are found in numerous museum collections, including the National Gallery of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Chrysler Museum of Art, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art and the Yale University Art Gallery.
